Abu Dhabi City Municipality (ADM) has announced that two slipways for boats and jet skis, which are to be built in Al Sadr and Al Bahya, are expected to complete in Q4 2018.
The 8,918m2 Al Sadr slipway, which will have a floor area of 2,538m2, will be developed at an investment of $2.7m (AED10m). The 12,939m2 Al Bahya slipway, which will boast a floor area of 3,022m2, is expected to cost in the region of $9m (AED33m).
In addition to the provision of dry mooring for boats, the overall project will feature a marina, commercial outlets, and a four-star hotel.
The initiative is intended to enhance the experience of sea cruisers and generate a regular income source, according to ADM.
A press release issued by the municipality stated: “Construction works of the hotel and the permanent […] Al Sadr and Al Bahya slipways are expected to start in September 2017, and the two projects, together with their components, are expected to be opened in the last quarter of 2018.
“The municipality has prepared two temporary slipways for boats and jet skis at Al Sadr and Al Bahya in Abu Dhabi, and called on the public to use these [facilities] pending the completion of the two permanent slipways,” the statement added.
ADM also revealed details of two additional slipways, which are to be constructed in Al Hidairiyat and Bawbat by Abu Dhabi General Services Company (Musanada). The municipality said that procedures for the $2m (AED7.4m) development are underway, and that the project has passed the 25% completion mark.
Once finished, the planned slipways and related boat and jet ski amenities will enable sea-goers to deploy and recover their vessels in a proper and safe environment, ADM stated.
